    Lightbulb Thoughts on Single Player Classic

    A couple of idle thoughts from an old traditionalist, about the Classic mode.

    I understand it having its own high score table (thank goodness!) but wonder why, if my score in Classic mode is better than that in 'normal' single-player-with-power-ups-and-stuff, it doesn't also update my 'normal' high score at the same time. Is there any scenario in which playing in classic mode could offer me one second more play or one point more than if I had played in normal mode? (I haven't played enough to see if any of the power ups actually affect physics.) If not, how about it?

    Playing in classic mode doesn't contribute to unlocking power ups, even though you might be doing the same stuff - travelling, hitting bumpers, activaing ball saves and so on. Why not? I'd appreciate the pop-ups not appearing (or being much reduced in significance) but I still get 'XP' so why not the other things?


    Neither is a big deal, merely a suggestion that I think would be an improvement.

    Default Meanwhile, in hot-seat mode...

    I assume hot-seat mode is straight-up classic..? So the ability to add scores to the local high score table would be nice.

    And to really push my luck, writing with the blasé self-entitled overprivileged air of one who doesn't actually have to implement it, wouldn't it be nice if a group of people logged on to my console with their own accounts could play local hotseat together and set their own online classic high scores, earn XP, gain levels, unlock trophies, that sort of thing?

    +1000 to being able to use individual log ins for local multiplayer. As it is now there is no sense of purpose when playing this mode as there are no scores to chase. At least in Zen 2 for PS4 they had a local leaderboard where you could enter your initials if you made top 10 on your machine. This seems to be totally gone from FX3.
